Quotes: Rock Beats Laser
"...the best gun in the galaxy won't help if your opponent is bashing your brains out with a rock!"
Warhammer 40000 Rulebook, 3rd Edition, "Fighting a Close Combat"

"The more sophisticated the technology, the more vulnerable it is to primitive attack. People often overlook the obvious."
The Doctor, Doctor Who

"That's not fair! They've got rocks, all we've got are these machine guns!"
Snidley Whiplash, Dudley Do-Right

"Basically, it comes down to morale," [Cordelia Ransom] said. "I'm not going to suggest that morale can overcome enormous material odds. All the courage and determination in the universe won't mystically enable a mob armed with rocks to overcome trained infantry in battle armor, and you wouldn't believe me if I told you it could, now would you?"

"The Asgard have tried to stop [the Replicators]. You have demonstrated their weakness may be found from a less sophisticated approach. We are no longer capable of such thinking."
(later)
"The Asgard would never invent a weapon that propels small weights of iron and carbon alloys by igniting a powder of potassium nitrate, charcoal and sulfur. ... We cannot think like you."
Thor, "Small Victories," Stargate SG-1
